NETIQUETTE – Please observe the following rules! 

Always ensure a fair and factual tone in your posts.

The following rules apply: Discrimination and defamation of individuals and groups have no place with us, especially on the basis of their religion, origin, nationality, physical condition, income level, sexual identity, age or gender.

The authors of such comments will be blocked by us. The same applies to posts that are written in vulgar, abusive or hateful language or that violate the rights of third parties and copyrights. We delete suspicions, insinuations or theories that cannot be verified and are not supported by arguments or credible sources. If external links do not comply with these rules, we reserve the right to delete them as well. If we leave links in comments, the following applies: We are not responsible for linked content.

The misuse of PHOTONICS+ as advertising space for websites or services outside the exhibitor portfolio as well as the commercial or private offering of goods and services is not permitted and will result in the deletion of the post or the reporting of the post. Content, information, software or other material that violates existing laws may not be published.

We do not take any responsibility for the contributions of the participants, this lies with the respective person himself. The author of the contributions gives FLEET Events GmbH with the posting of his contribution the right to hold the contribution during the event.

Violations of the netiquette listed here will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to delete, hide or report contributions at any time without giving reasons. By interacting on the digital platform, all participants accept these guidelines. Violations of the general laws and legal regulations may, under certain circumstances, lead to exclusion from the event and, in serious cases, to the initiation of legal action.

We thank you for your understanding!

If your video and audio are not working and you know that your camera and microphone work for other applications, follow this link that describes the technology we use (WebRTC) in more detail https://www.cometchat.com/blog / webrtc-101-everything-you-need-to-know 

If the chat is not working, there are a few things you can check:

  • Reload the web page to re-enable the chat application.
  • Clear the browser cache

If the two steps have been done and there are still problems, please contact support.

Clearing the browser cache varies depending on the browser you are using. You can find a good overview at https://www.ionos.de/digitalguide/server/konfiguration/so-leeren-sie-ihren-cache/

Please make sure that the camera and microphone are not used in parallel in another meeting. Alternatively, it may be that the firewall on a company PC or network blocks the tool. However, there is nothing we can do about this.
